Over the years, the science and political communities have increasingly discussed research on Geoengineering. The concept of Geoengineering was first proposed in a report given to the Johnson administration in 1965 and it received a lot of positive and negative feedback. Today the effects of climate change are becoming more apparent and climate researchers have visited this topic time and time again. However, many researchers for and against Geoengineering believe that researching and deploying such a project would encourage us to turn a blind eye to our moral duties of reducing GHG emissions. Although there are many uncertainties that come with Geoengineering, research on this topic should at least be considered because it will allow us to buy time, help respond to a climate emergency and, in financial terms, it seems very practical. More over, if considered it is important to have a set of rules governing Geoengineering research.
Researching Geoengineering techniques would buy time to develop an environmentally safe renewable source of energy and sequester Green House Gas (GHG) emissions. Over the years, climate change has become more apparent resulting in massive heat waves, heavy rainfall, and glacier and sea ice melting. Undoubtedly, economic growth and the growing population have resulted in an increase in demand of energy. David Keith, a Harvard physicist and energy policy expert, stated, “the rate of growth of our emissions is accelerating and it 's accelerating…
